Transitions Lenses for Kids
Parents understand that they need to take precautions to protect their children’s skin from too much sun exposure but many parents may not be aware of the need to also protect their children’s eyes from the sun’s potentially harmful glare and UV rays. The basic truth is that children are more at risk of experiencing the eye-damaging effects of UV exposure than adults for a number of reasons. For example: children are outdoors more than adults and, on average, they can receive three times the annual UV exposure as an adult; also the lens of an eye of a child below age ten allows more than six times the amount of ultraviolet radiation to penetrate than an adult‘s eye. These are important examples as to why taking care of children’s eyes is so important. Understanding the best ways to do that--as well as protecting them early--can preserve their quality and health of sight for now and the future. To facilitate this, Transitions lenses are one of the most convenient ways to provide automatic, everyday protection for children who wear prescription eyeglasses. Transitions lenses block 100% of UV radiation and reduce glare, which also serves to minimize eye strain and fatigue.
